NEW: Now everyone on Curtsy can shop Clear Out Lots 🛍

The wait is over! Everyone can now bid on “lots” of 3+ highly discounted items from the same seller.

Say Hello to Curtsy Clear Outs: The Ultimate Shopping Hack!

We’re thrilled to announce that everyone can now shop Curtsy Clear Outs! You can now shop bulk lots of 3+ clothing items at a discount, and pay only one shipping price. That’s right, it’s your time to score big on fashion deals and upgrade your thrifting game with ease!

Compared with normal, single item listings that are available on the app until they sell, Clear Outs sell via auction over 7 days. Once the auction ends, the seller will ship the entire Clear Out in one shipment to the buyer with the winning bid.

How does bidding work?

To get started, simply tap ‘Place Bid’ on the Clear Out you’re interested in. From there, you’ll be able to place a single bid or choose the Autobid option. With Autobid, you choose your maximum bid and we’ll bid for you in $1 increments up to your max to help you win the auction. 

Don’t want to wait until the end of the auction? Tap “Buy It Now” to name your price & send an offer to the seller. Sellers have 48 hours to respond to your binding offer. If they accept, you win the lot!

Not ready to bid, but want to stay updated on the hype? Tap “Add To Watchlist” to be notified of new bids and when the auction is an hour from ending.

Read more on how Bidding works

We know you’ll love the convenience and affordability that Curtsy Clear Out brings, and we’re excited for you to experience it.  If you’d like more info, check out our FAQ page or send us a message in the app.

We’re always listening to your feedback and working to create features that you’ll love. We’d love to hear from you on how we can continue to improve ([email protected]). Stay tuned for more exciting updates!

Happy shopping!

The Curtsy community is nothing without our sellers. To ring in the new year, we’re shining a spotlight on sellers living their best life on Curtsy and how they sell clothes online.

We love creating a space for you to just do you – whether that’s raking in high earnings as a pro seller or refreshing your closet by selling gently used quality clothes. Read on to meet a few Curtsy Babes, how much they’ve earned, tips on selling on the app, and peek into their Curtsy closets!

    Hi there! I’m Madilyn Moore! I’m a content creator/influencer specializing in fashion! Because of this, I get a TON of high quality clothing, but i’m always making space for new items!
  • What do you love about the Curtsy Community?
    I love using Curtsy because it’s easy to use and has all of my FAVORITE brands in one place! I also especially love their quality promise, so in the event that I get a piece that isn’t exactly what was described- I get my money back!
  • Is there anything in particular you are using/saving up your Curtsy Earnings for?
    I’m always using Curtsy as a way to make room in my closet for more unique pieces! When I sell, I keep the profit of my sales in my curtsy balance to spend on more clothes!
  • What is your top seller tip?
    My top seller tip is to upload photos of you wearing the item- especially in a styled way! I upload my instagram photos when I’m selling items that I received from brands- and it helps people to see the item more clearly and picture them wearing it themselves!

  • Earnings: $20,000+
  • Tell us a little about yourself!
    Hi! Here are my responses for the questions: Hi! I’m Erin, and 2023 marks my 10th year of being a reseller! I’ve been thrifting since I was a teenager, always looking for cool, unique pieces no one else had. I’ve always been passionate about extending the lifespan of clothing, and helping people find pieces they love while keeping them out of landfills brings me so much joy!
  • What do you love about the Curtsy Community?
    I love how open and welcoming the Curtsy Community is! The Curtsy team truly cares about user experience, and allows us to voice our opinions on things like new features or improvements we’d like to see. No other app feels as approachable to me as Curtsy does.

    For the last 2 years I’ve been putting all my reselling earnings into a savings account to put a down payment on a house. Hoping to reach my goal this year!
  • What is your top seller tip?
    Use Google Lens to help you locate stock photos for your pieces. In my experience, items sell better with them, but sometimes they can be tricky to find. This tool has helped me find stock photos almost instantly for a ton of clothes!

  • Tell us a little about yourself!
    Hi! My name is Alexis Rocco. I’m 21 years old and I live in Upstate New York with my fiancé, Andrew and my corgi, Lucy. I began my account on Curtsy during my senior year of high school in 2020, and have been buying and selling on it ever since! I’ll be graduating with my Bachelor’s degree in early childhood and elementary education this upcoming May and will hopefully be teaching in my own classroom shortly after!
  • What do you love about the Curtsy Community?
    I love that the members of the Curtsy community are so friendly and understanding! They are always willing to answer questions or provide additional information and on top of all of this, there are always new and trendy clothes being brought to the platform as a result of the community!
  • Is there anything in particular you are using/saving up your Curtsy Earnings for?
    Right now, I’m saving any earnings from Curtsy for my future classroom! I’ll likely need to provide most if not all of the books/materials and things for my classroom once I have a permanent teaching position, so any purchases from my closet will really help to make school more beneficial for my future students!
  • What is your top seller tip?
    My best tip for new sellers is to keep the price in mind that they definitely want or need for a particular item when posting it and when responding to offers! I will price my items in a way that specifically allows me to be able to send/counter offers while still getting the price I was looking for when posting the item! For more experienced sellers, I would say to keep your inventory current and post new items frequently to keep your closet in the view of the community!

  • Tell us a little about yourself!
    Hi!! My name is Chesley Paschal, and I am a student at Georgia Tech. I am currently getting my degree in Industrial Engineering. Some of my favorite things in life are traveling, fashion, school, coffee, and taking photos. Everyone who knows me knows that Curtsy is my absolute favorite place to shop. I am constantly selling clothes and buying new pieces to sustainably refresh my wardrobe. I downloaded Curtsy in 2019 and have made nearly $2000 selling my clothes.
  • What do you love about the Curtsy Community?
    I love how kind, responsive, and friendly the Curtsy community is. Everyone is always very communicative and open about the pieces they are selling and their shipping times. The Curtsy Community is the reason why Curtsy is my favorite place to buy and sell clothes.
  • Is there anything in particular you are using/saving up your Curtsy Earnings for?
    I am constantly needing new outfits for date nights, formals, and themed events, so a decent amount of my earnings from Curtsy go directly back into finding new, fun pieces to add to my wardrobe. Every single formal dress I have worn so far has been from Curtsy, and the majority of my game day, date night, and everyday class outfits have consisted of pieces from Curtsy as well. If I am not using my earnings for new clothes, I will put them into my college savings account to help pay for textbooks, sorority dues, and other expenses!
  • What is your top seller tip?
    My top seller tip would be to take photos with good lighting, background, etc., and take multiple different photos of each piece. Also, including pictures of how you styled the piece/ how it fit helps them sell SO much faster. Lastly, being open to offers and communicating with buyers always makes my clothes sell faster.

    Hi! My name is Madden. I am 20 years old and am a college student studying business and media studies at the University of Sioux Falls in South Dakota. I started selling thrifted clothing my junior year of high school the summer after covid-19 hit. I had way too many clothes and needed a way to cure myself of boredom, so I went on Pinterest and decided to tie dye a bunch of my clothing to spice them up. After I had a few too many pieces of tie dyed clothing, my aunt suggested I sell some pieces. At first I sold on my Snapchat story but I wanted to create an actual platform to make it easier to grow my business. I found Curtsy and absolutely fell in love. Because of Curtsy, I decided to switch from being a nursing student freshman year to business my sophomore year so I continue selling thrifted items and spreading the goodness of second hand shopping! I couldn’t thank the support of the Curtsy community enough for allowing me to continue my passion. I now sell anything from activewear, professional team gear, your favorite lounge pieces, to unique vintage finds!
  • What do you love about the Curtsy Community?
    Curtsy is the easiest app to sell your own items on. It takes less than a minute to take photos of your desired clothing item and to post it. Curtsy is continuously adding new and desirable features to make it even more accessible for sellers and buyers. I’ve tried almost every second hand shopping app, but I prefer Curtsy over them all. Not only are you able to follow your favorite sellers and see what the top 100 most popular selling items are, you can watch popular try-on videos to get a true feel of the item you’re interested in unlike any other second hand shopping app. The Curtsy team is so quick to help with any questions you may have and they ALWAYS have a solution. The curtsy community is unlike any other.
  • Is there anything in particular you are using/saving up your Curtsy Earnings for?
    I’m so fortunate to be able to use Curtsy to help put money away toward college. I’ve always been a busy bee but keeping up with two part time jobs along with classes was difficult. Curtsy has allowed me to still be able to focus on my family, friends, and working toward my goals.
  • What is your top seller tip?
    My top seller tip is to be active and responsive to questions and always offer free shipping! I have made close to $25k alone since starting Curtsy in 2019 by selling 1.5k items! I love interacting with my customers and being able to make sure they know exactly what I’m selling. I love sending out my items knowing the buyers are going to absolutely love the pieces they have specially picked out! Treat yourself, ladies!

  2. HydroFlask Mug. Surely Mom already has her favorite mugs, but does she have a HydroFlask mug ☕️? Remind your mom just how thoughtful you are with a gift she can use on the go. 
  3. DIY Tile Mat. These Pinterest worthy tile mats are the perfect gift for mom. She can create her own messages and designs. It’s perfect for year-round use and great for every holiday 🎄!
  4. Brooklinen Robe. Mom will definitely need to unwind after this year’s holiday festivities. Let her unwind in style with a high quality linen robe in her favorite color 🛁! 
  5. Birkenstock Boston Clogs 👞. Although she has had her Birkenstocks for decades, it may be time for a much needed upgrade. Get Mom a pair of Birkenstocks that are in style, in season, and that will be around for decades to come.

Thrifting & Other Sustainability Tips from Club Curtsy💚

It’s obvious here at Curtsy we support a circular economy and believe thrifting is a major player in shopping and selling sustainably. But how can you help out our earth in other aspects of your life? 🌎 We’ve got you!

Meet a few ✨awesome Stylists✨ from Club Curtsy’s Summer 2021 class below. 👇

Pro tip:We’re always sharing sustainability tips on our Instagram & TikTok. ♻️

🪴 Why I Love Thrifting: I love thrifting and shopping second hand because it’s better for the environment and cheaper as well! Additionally, with things like denim more wear is good because they’re more comfortable!
♻️ Sustainability Tip:
My favorite sustainability tip is to find clothing brands that align with your own values and goals (such as sustainable brands etc). I also like to reuse packaging like jars!

🪴 Why I Love Thrifting:
I love shopping with curtsy and thrift stores in general because not only are the clothes cheaper, it is helping the environment! Not to mention, it is super easy to post the clothes you don’t want anymore on curtsy!
♻️ Sustainability Tip:
One of my sustainability tips is to try to use reusable bags when going to the store, wether that be the grocery store or shopping out and about! You can also use metal straws instead of plastic straws so you aren’t wasting any plastic, you can even buy the reusable Starbucks cups!

🪴 Why I Love Thrifting: I love thrifting because I get to rehome my clothes to someone who will appreciate them more than me. 
♻️ Sustainability Tip:
If I have one tip on staying sustainable its that anything that may seem old to you can be new to someone else!

🪴 Why I Love Thrifting:
I’ve recently found a love for fashion- especially second hand. Thrifting/second hand shopping is such a great way to avoid buying fast fashion, which is unfortunately mistreating us, as well as our environment. Older pieces that I find to be my style are marked down significantly, so it’s easy to have a wardrobe full of what I WANT to wear! Thrifting is one of my favorite activities to do with my friends. Trying out new styles without breaking the bank is truly a fun and rewarding experience! 
♻️ Sustainability Tip:
My favorite sustainability tip is to purchase one or two reusable water bottles. I have two bottles that I switch between, and they’re great! Americans throw away 35 billion empty water bottles a year- and only 12% are recycled. Having a reusable bottle eliminates the waste, and I’ve also found that I’m excited to use it!

#CurtsyCares CurtsyCelebrates Trending

Celebrating Juneteenth Today & Everyday

Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. Styles and cultures have been taken away from Black people for decades to be reclaimed as something more “trendy” or “appropriate.” There is a double standard between POC and white people when it comes to the fashion industry. Microaggressions frequently bash Black people for wearing the styles that they originated. Appreciating the culture rather than appropriating it comes with advocating for Black lives.

Like many trends, the bucket hat was initially invented purely for function. Often referred to as a “fishing hat”, bucket hats were first introduced in the 1900s to protect farmers and fishermen from the rain. It wasn’t until the 1960s that the bucket hat would be adopted as a high fashion item. In the 1980s, the hat became popular with rappers and remained a staple of street fashion into the 1990s. More recently, it has re-emerged as a fashion catwalk item after being sported by celebrities such as Rihanna and Megan Thee Stallion.

One of the latest trends ruling Pinterest, creative acrylic nails are everywhere. However, as decorative nail art enters the mainstream, Black women are being left out of the conversation that they started. Acrylic nails are still frequently labelled as ‘trashy’, ‘cheap’ and ‘ghetto’ when worn by a black woman. It’s important to be respectful as a non-POC when choosing to wear nails and to change the rhetoric to give credit where credit is due.

While branding first played a role in fashion as a way to showcase class and status, it soon became an aesthetic look that many still know and love today. In the ‘80s, designer Daniel Day, better known as Dapper Dan, began dressing hip-hop’s top artists by reengineering these luxury logos in a bold and flashy way. Dapper Dan helped start a resurgence in creativity in the fashion industry.

The hoop earring has evolved into an essential fashion accessory, and the staple of anyone’s jewelry collection. Black women have brought hoop earrings into the mainstream and have sustained their popularity for decades. In the 60s and 70s, hoops were a way to embrace Afro-Centric styles. We can see these iconic earring on some of the most influential celebrities such as Diana Ross and Maya Angelou.

After the past year of staying at home, baggy clothes have become all the rave, and will still be my go-to fashion choice post covid. Skinny jeans are out, and straight-leg mom jeans are in. The origins of the oversized clothing trend dates back to the ’80s hip hop era, and stems from black communities and families, as well as financial hardships. Larger clothing was passed down to younger family members from older family members to save money. Baggy clothing is a comfortable trend for all shapes and sizes.

Often called “sneaker heads”, the community made up of people with a deep love for sneakers first became popularized in the 1970s and 80s with sneakers made famous by hip hop starts and athletes. Sneaker culture and collecting unique, limited edition, and flashy sneakers became a hobby and identity for many. Basketball icon Michael Jordan released his “Nike Air Jordans” in 1985, and these shoes are often seen as the first step to becoming a sneakerhead. The resale of these rare and exclusive sneaker has become an industry in it of itself, as we see in GOAT and Stockx.

When we think of tracksuits today, I often think of the bright red tracksuit Sue Sylvester wore every day in the TV series Glee. However, Baby Phat walked so Sue Sylvester could run. Initially named “Phat Fashions, Kimora Lee Simmons launched her tracksuit empire in 1999. This street style became a fashion essential due to its comfortability and iconic look. Rappers like Jay-Z also skyrocketed the tracksuit trend into popularity when it became a symbol of wealth, that you didn’t need to “sweat the small stuff such as getting dressed”- that a tracksuit was fashionable enough. 

Head-wraps and silk headscarves are ruling the summer trends this season. And there’s no question why – whether it’s to look luxurious or conceal a bad hair day, silk headscarves can make an outfit. It is however important to recognize the origin of this trend and what it represents. Born into slavery, reclaimed by Black women, the headwrap is now a celebrated in the fashion industry to express style and identity.
